You Dare (Climate Change)

Look what you are doing to me,
I am your Mother Earth.
Contaminate me in all ways
Gases and plastic each day.

I tell you this stupid ones
I will circle the sun always
You will not be remembered
No more thinking races.

I will celebrate your passing.
Even the Dinosaurs were my children.
They, though mostly cruel honoured me.
Then I gave them plenty of food to eat

You, crawlers of my world, what now?
Will you clean my air for your use.
My Oceans will you clean that also.
I am Mother earth so beware.

My new children will not be greedy.
They will wander as before without let.
Long after you have destroyed your own.
There will be no-one to mourn your passing.

I wonder who will be blamed?
Would there ever be a point in doing so?
I shall let you wander as dust in the universe.
There maybe you will be born again..

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How does this theme appeal to you?
Last few words: 
Just a jotting to fill spaces on the September comp lol Take care out there and know we walk the same pathways, Yours Ian ..
Editing stage: 


great on a couple of levels.
I like the premise that we can be replaced as the dominate life on this planet. We can be the first species to bring about our own extinction! I'm not a fan of the line that says "Then, I gave them oxygen to breathe. " It sounds like a reward for respecting "Mother Earth".
Your title is good and the theme is much on everyone's mind. ~ Gee.

Come to Chat on the Darkside
every other Saturday night 8pm to ?
Bring your dark and delicious work
to show.

Many thanks for your visit and thoughts,
I changed the line you thought was not so good
Hope all is OK now.
Hope that your folks are all OK
Take care and my best thoughts as always, Ian ..

the EARTH will continue to revolve and rotate
about me
I am the Sun
for all times
gone and yet to come

do your homework
rest leave to the flames of the sun

in 80 years all calculate
mountains will have snow

to enable all to remember
80 is to 20
all humans still Ian recall
you must first of all
as poetically
you are so very tall

Thank you for your wise words 80-20 well we have had our 20 since time began for Humons.
The religions control, the few that have all the money there are many excuses by them as to why the 80 have ruined the Earth.
It could make the 80 very bitter and if they had the resources to fight back the world might recover, it is impossible for the many to overcome the few lol.
I shall keep my head down in case I am smote.
I am far to old to change the world..
Lovely to hear from you keep writing and teach Our young ones tha only they can change the world so that Humons can survive..
Yours as always Ian ..x
